  • Why do I like it?

I discovered that coconut butter and nut butter taste like a decadent treat when you eat them together.  I had some of the toasted coconut/sunflower seed mixture in my fridge and decided to sprinkle some on top.  It was really good!  I discovered this during the 5 week period I was giving up processed foods and sugar.  The texture of the crisp, juicy apple balance the stickiness of the butters.  The toasted topping adds a bit of crunch.

 

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

Well, I came up with this one, so that question isn't really relevant!  I did try it with both almond and peanut butter and both tasted great.  It would probably be great with a tart, green apple or any variety of apple you prefer.
